How does it fail?  Works here(tm):

[sandeen@sandeen tmp]$ git clone
[sandeen@sandeen xfsprogs-dev]$ cd xfsprogs-dev
[sandeen@sandeen xfsprogs-dev]$ make
aclocal -I m4
checking build system type... x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu
checking host system type... x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu
    [CC]     attrset.o
    [LD]     xfs_db
[sandeen@sandeen xfsprogs-dev]$

Wonder what the difference is...

Odd, libxfs/Makefile has:


But to be honest, the DEBUG stuff has been a thorn in my side for Fedora
too, with the extra CFLAGS it sets, something gets goobered up by
default, and I build with -DNDEBUG for those packages too.

I just haven't sorted it out yet ....

So things to look into, but can you also describe how building xfstests
fails for you when you have all the ubuntu xfsprogs-related packages
